The following aren’t all my nutrition rules, but they’ve served me well. I’ll probably add to them over time.
If food advice comes from an American, probably best to ignore it or do the opposite.
Avoid talking about protein, carbohydrates, and other scientific concept that you can’t sense. Talk about broccoli, cabbage, and spaghetti squash—things that you can hold in your hand or pick up with your fork and eat.
A restaurant that asks, “what protein would you like?”, thereby categorizing beans with chicken, will likely serve mostly unfit people.
Ignore “latest findings” until they’ve endured five years without another latest finding contradicting it. (They never do.)
